Moscow expects ESA head in March - Roscosmos
MOSCOW. Jan 15 (Interfax) - A meeting between the general director of Roscosmos and the head of the European Space Agency (ESA) is planned for March this year and will take place in Moscow, the press service of the state corporation said in a statement.
"Roscosmos confirms agreement on a telephone conversation between its General Director Dmitry Rogozin and the head of the European Space Agency Johann-Dietrich Woerner planned for February 3," the statement said.
"The sides will discuss current cooperation issues. We will also be glad to welcome Mr. Woerner in Moscow in March," it said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Woerner said at a press conference in Paris that he planned to meet Rogozin in the near future.
Woerner told Interfax last August that the ESA was prepared to sign an agreement with Roscosmos to continue the use of Russia's Soyuz space vehicles.
Rogozin also spoke of instructions to draft an agreement with the ESA on the use of Russian manned spaceships for the delivery of European astronauts to the International Space Station.

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Russia Laurie Bristow, who is leaving his post, has given an exclusive interview to Interfax in which he speaks about prospects of relations with Russia, arms control, the situation in Syria and surrounding Iran, as well as other topical problems on the international agenda.
